RE: CVS authentication using LDAP.

        Similar to this request, does anyone have any wisdom on a good way to set up CVS authentication via LDAP, but in a manner which allows the password to be secured as it travels across the network?

        Currently we already have LDAP up and running, and we use CVS version 1.11.17. I could upgrade this to a 1.12 version with PAM support, but I'm not inclined to bother doing that until I have a solution to the authentication issue.

        In my research I came across one possibility which uses "stunnel", which is SSL tunneling software I'm not familiar with, but I'm wondering if anyone has had experience using this or any similar method for CVS user authentication.

        I understand this is all probably a familiar question to everyone, but if someone could point me toward some basic information that would help me to implement this, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,
- Mark

Hi ,
In the present scenario, we have usernames/passwords stored for each repository on the CVS system itself. We would like to use the LDAP server for CVS authentication which stores all the Network login IDs and passwords. This way we wouldn't have to store passwords on the server and users will have to remember only their network/windows login password.

For this, we might have to install some system level packages related to PAM (which supports LDAP authentication).
So anybody have any links or docs to configure the LDAP on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 2)

Thanks for help in advance.
